a pastor who is now bringing religion into a political conversation when you use comparing these people to demons. what do you say to the people who say that maybe this is not a place that the church should venture into. i mean, this is a political conversation. you should be more concerned about saving souls and leading a congregation. >> well, that's why organizations coin the phrase souls to the polls. jesus once said, render unto caesar and render unto god what is god's. we have government ordained by god. if you look at moses, he was involved in government. if you look at joseph, he was involved in government. all throughout the bible, i mean, in the bible you see strong personalities who were involved in government. it is a right. we must support those things that will provide the quality of life and will provide a standard of living for human beings. so, any time you suppress that, any time you take away that, it has to be demonic and diabolical. >> the last question, i want to talk about policy, aside from politics. and the president endorsed gay marriage as a policy. do you thi

liberties in this country. they are infringing on the freedom of religion by infringing on catholic charities, catholic churches, catholic hospitals. our church should not have to sue our federal government to maintain religious liberties. with respect to abortion, the democratic party said that they wanted it to be safe, legal, and rare. now they support it without restrictions and with taxpayer funding. the vice president went to china and said that he sympathized or would not second- guess their one-child policy of forced abortions and sterilization. that's pretty extreme. >> my religion defines who i am. i have been a practicing catholic my whole life. it is particularly -- has particularly informed my social doctrine. the catholic doctrine talks about taking care of those who cannot take care of themselves, people who need help. with regard to abortion, i accept my church's position on abortion as life begins at conception. i accept that in my personal life, but i refused to impose that on equally devout christians, muslims, jews. unlike my friend, congressman. have at believe
